I am a highly qualified Child Care professional with a passion for learning and analytical thinking. I am a creative person; I love creating lesson plans tailor-fit to my students’ abilities and also teach new skills in fun and exciting ways. I sincerely believe that play is an essential part of learning, and I usually use it to encourage learning and routines.

I have finished my undergraduate in Pedagogy (Reviewer and Education Adviser) by Seville University. The area that interests me the most is the Autism Spectrum. As a result, I have carried out several courses to understand the autism spectrum better and the unique needs and requirement that would make the children fully functional and caring adults in the future.

I have worked as a volunteer in:

Red Cross – Seville, Spain 2017 – Currently volunteer
Highlight: Weekly assistance about the correct use of the technologies to elderly people

Autistic People Organisation – Seville, Spain 2013 (six months)
Highlight: Teaching autistic children to swim and using pictograms and different behaviour change techniques
